You're back!

before the core jump the other day, the height was 178m, so it's now around 183m?

If that's the case, here's an amended list of NYC buildings it has recently passed.

Wow, it looks so great from the base. I think this will end up more elegant than One57.

You added 3 extra metres there. It's 180 m now.

Current progress model (because I already had a 432 Park Ave model built)

I think I have kept the right amount. The top of the core is at 180m anyway.
Still quite as long way to go

It's about 10 or 15 feet above the pyramidal Park Tower adjacent to it.

Park Tower is 561 feet, so 432 PA is about 575 feet.

About 41% give or take.

432 Park, Tower Verre & One57 featured in the Galleria Condo Promo Video

Select to watch it in HD quality



Now just imagine 111W57 and 225W57 towering as high as 432PA in the video.


Sorry! OT

Warning! Look below at your own risk. (don’t get excited fellas)

Check out this 600 footer skyscraper in Beijing. Lol.

You realize that's from one angle only and that the entire upper section is still covered in scaffolding?
